The Health, Safety and Wellness (HSW) Forum runs twice a year, and provides an opportunity for parties across the University to raise and discuss relevant occupational health and safety matters.

2018's forums were held on:

  • 12 June 2018
  • 18 October 2018.

Guest speakers make presentations relevant to UQ, and the HSW Division provides updates about relevant matters. The Forum is an opportunity for communication between all areas of UQ on a range of HSW-related topics. Participants can share experiences that may assist in improving HSW outcomes.

For more information about the HSW Forum, contact the Director, HSW.
